Harriet Ross Tubman, 1911. In my opinion one the most interesting women in the world, past or present. Its difficult to summarize her bio in 500 characters. She was an adventurer, humanitarian, reformer, spy & hero. The links give an account of her life & accomplishments. I chose this image because it fits her other name, "Moses". http://www.math.buffalo.edu/~sww/0history/hwny-tubman.html, http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/aia/part4/4p1535.html, http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/aia/part4/4p1535.html.

Powell argued that "it was disease and not age that made him look the way he did. Powell remarked that according to tribe he was only 88 years old.
